The wealth is already being redistributed. The problem is that the republicans are the ones acting like socialists. Social Democrats believe in manipulating the tax rates to the advantage of a certain economic class and that is what is happening. The problem is that it is for the benefit of people that don't really need it. Our country's wealth is being redistributed UP and redistribution is redistribution. It isn't like they are using the money to create jobs, so don't even go there. This is the big picture. They should pay the same tax rate I do. I'm not saying pay more than me, just the same. How could anyone have a problem with that?
